Every Wednesday after school, the year 7 students are offered the chance to take part in a Chess Club, with Mrs Pearson, to broaden their skills and enjoy a match or two.
The club is open to all Year 7 students, from experienced players of the game to novices, who want to learn a new skill. Students have been shown the basic rules of the game and as time has gone have learnt new skills to put into practice within the game.
Students work very well together and are brilliant at encouraging each other, but some are super competitive! Overall, the club enhances student teamwork skills while also building on their problem solving through games.
